Clone based on Semroc BT-50 tubing. Inkjet decals. Ready to fly and I dropped it as I was dabbing the last bit of excess water from the decals. Broke two fillets and missed its first chance at flight glory at B6-4 Field.:mad::rolleyes:

And a couple of months later, a flight pic.





Broke a fin on landing, but don't they all. B6-4 Field is rough on streamer birds.
